Former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick called out Malcolm Jenkins’ leadership — among other things — earlier today. Jenkins responded through the media.

And now we have the Eagles backing up their defensive captain.

The team’s official Twitter account tweeted the following video on Friday afternoon:

For context, this play shows Jenkins hustling and forcing a fumble with the Eagles down 18 points to the Minnesota Vikings with 1:48 remaining in regulation. It also shows Scandrick saying the following:

Wow. It’s not every day that you see a team come out and shade a former player like this.

UPDATE: Jenkins weighed in via his Twitter account.

Eagles senior vice president of communications and community affairs Brandon Boone also tweeted this:
